A couple years ago I made this set of Six Thinking Hats posters to use with my Grade Four students. I combined several useful Six Thinking Hats resources into one A4 sized poster per hat. In addition to De Bono’s book, I primarily relied on a list of questions and sentence stems related to each hat (including mention of Bloom’s taxonomy).

You are welcome to download and print these posters. If you use them, I’d love to hear how. Even more importantly, if you have any suggestions, comments, or requests, please tell me; I want to make this set as useful as possible.

    The six hat posters are great, especially with the prompts beside the hat. I will use these in my classroom, and tell some colleagues where to find them.

    Hello Richard,

    My name is Shaunese and I am working on composing a planner for myself. I came across a “poster book” of yours while on online and liked the concept behind it. After researching the concept of The Six Thinking Hats I decided I would like to incorporate them into my planner.

    Only one problem, I have looked all over the web and I am unable to come across the images used for the hats. I am just simply looking for the images of the colored hats in the likes of those displayed on your posters.

    If in any way you are able to help me out in this matter pleas let me know, it would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks for your comment. I’m glad you liked my De Bono book. I found the original red hat image at the clipart library here. I created the other colours of the hats using Inkscape (which you can download for free).

      Good luck, and I hope this helps you!
